Public Records Requests

Alabama State Bar Policy Governing the Production of Public Records

Alabama law makes public records available to its citizens, subject to exceptions specified by law (sections 36-12-40 and 41, Code of Alabama, 1975, as amended). These exceptions generally prevent the disclosure of privileged and confidential information. Responses to records requests are made by the Alabama State Bar employees who have other primary duties. Therefore, in the interest of efficiency and good stewardship of taxpayer funds, the following procedure has been established to provide an orderly method for requesting and viewing records that are held or maintained by the Alabama State Bar.
